All intamin track is like that. It isn't that a train wore of the paint, just Intamin doesn't paint the strip of track that the wheels run on. Here's an example, picture taken in October.

He said it rolled back in the second corkscrew. :P


Probably has alot to do with getting the stators to fire correctly. Doesnt suprise me that speed would be an issue during testing till its firing on all stators.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

That doesn't mean ANYTHING. As it was said, apparently all Intamins are like that, AND they did a pull-through. Of course the train has been there.

Will this thing really be open by opening day? It dosen't look so. We just got another blast of cold air and snow so this may halt construstion for a few days.

I bet since they worked through the winter the bad weather will be nothing. I got the snow on my way home from Chicago tonight.

How does something like that get out?? Doesn't Cedar Fair keep that under wraps?

Well, Cedar Fair can't control everything it's employees and the people who have been contracted to build the ride take video of, especially on days when construction is halted, besides with all of the movies, and povs already out, they are probably more relaxed about it.
